Knife Skills Video

I’ve watched many kitchen knife skills videos in my day on Youtube and elsewhere, but I’ve produced what I believe is the best 8 minute presentation on the subject to be found on the internet. Check out my post at http://www.180kitchen.wordpress.com/ – complete  with instructions on how to buy the right knife and why learning proper knife skills is such...

David Brown on Omega 6 Fats

One nutrition researcher who claims to have been “studying nutritional controversies” for decades is David Brown of Kalispell, MT. David contacted me nearly two years ago, and we’ve kept in close contact ever since. In our health travels, we’ve both come to similar conclusions on the two greatest dietary evils – omega 6 fat and refined fructose. With...

180 Weight Watchers Points

Oh no he di’in!  180 member, follower, and HED superstar Brock Cusick has written a guest post. It’s the best thing since Jenny the Nipper went totally ape shit on Weight Watchers, Venuto, the WAPF, Ray Peat, and Matt Stone a couple weeks ago. I support this points system, with the exception of the overcooked veggies. Cook the hell out of them if you want to. No deductions. The...

Death to Diets!

The comments section on “Weight Watchers Fail” is really inspiring.  Inspiring enough to make this official… I, Matt Stone, am an anti-diet crusader. Like I’ve said, if I find a way that truly allows us all to be lean without sacrificing our health and sanity, you’ll be the first to know. For now, we’re all going to shove a collective fist up the entire...

Jack LaLanne on Sugar

I’ve seen this video, and I’m sure many of you guys have seen it too. But for the less fortunate who haven’t seen it, it is a must. A true classic. I couldn’t hold out on ya any longer. This is especially poignant in regard to the comment the other day left by someone bashing breakfast cereal and other supposed “healthy” foods that contain sugar (as opposed to...

Weight Watchers Fail

The other day I posted a nice message sent to me about epic diet failure. Well guess what? I got another message from a lifelong dieter early this morning. The story is the same. A little weight crept in during the early years, which was met with swift Weight Watchers catastrophe. All diets suck, but calorie restriction in which foods of all degrees of quality or lack thereof are on the same...

The Healing Process

A few days ago someone contacted me about weight loss. She had a lifelong history of dieting, beginning of course with low-calorie and low-fat diets, a lot of exercise, etc. She also had a few years of methamphetamine addiction to throw in the mix (caused, in part I’m sure, by a lifelong history of dieting – I HATED stimulants until I starved myself, then found them strangely...

Fructose, Leptin, and Insulin Resistance podcasts

The podcasts are now archived on my Youtube channel: 180degreehealth. I won’t always do a blog post featuring every podcast that I post, but wanted everyone to know that they can subscribe to the 180degreehealth channel and receive updates whenever I do a new recording or video there. Here are the first two podcasts for 2010 – a 2-part series on the connection between fructose,...

New Stuff Everywhere

I’ve been an even busier boy this week than ever. But I wanted to let all the blog-following faithful know what’s going on out there. First up are 3 brand new 180 Kitchen posts. Thai coconut soup, Thai Massaman curry, and Baby Back ribs all have their own posts and tutorial videos. To see the latest there, click HERE. I’ve also uploaded 8 new content pages to the main site...

The Holy Grail of Fructose Information

This is a long video, but perhaps the most professionally-done presentation on dietary evil #1 ever made. This is why I don’t focus on negligible health diversions like “eat organic” or “eat grassfed beef for the extra .5 gram of omega 3” or spend much time debating the value of potatoes vs. rice, or pork vs. chicken, or how much water is healthy, or how much salt...

The Concentration Camp Diet

I have a few thoughts about the good old low-calorie diet for weight loss if you haven’t noticed. In fact, I’ve gotten plenty of heat (no pun intended) for making allusions between what is recommended as a typical “healthy diet,” and the fare that was provided to residents at Nazi concentration camps (please don’t be offended, it is just simply a fact). This came to a head on the New York Times...

Leptin and Reversing type 2 Diabetes

As most of you have heard, my new eBook, 180 Degree Diabetes – Preventing and Reversing Insulin Resistance, Metabolic Syndrome, and Type 2 Diabetes, has been published. In that book, I fail to talk about the connection between the hormone leptin and type 2 diabetes, although I’m fully aware of it. The book was complicated enough, and the bottom line is that overfeeding HED-style has the ability...

If Nutritionists Were Mechanics 2

MattStone
By Jenny Allan *The Weight Watchers Mechanic* Customer: Hi my car isn’t working as well as it used to. I used to be able to use any kind of fuel and have no problems, but lately things have been sluggish and heavy when I put my foot on the gas. The Weight Watchers Mechanic:  Your car naturally will see increasingly poor performance as you get older. Have you signed up for our special...

3 Words of Wisdom for 2010

It’s almost time for a New Year.  Instead of going on a verbose rampage, searching my soul for wisdom and inspiration to impart upon the 180 cult, I give you simply a gift that was given to me this Christmas by my 7-year old niece.  She knows her Uncle Matt well.  Thanks little Abby Dunlop.  Can’t wait to eat something off of it. This is the top side of the...

Response to NY Times Article: What is Your Temperature? Rethinking 98.6

Recently, an article with typical stupifying conclusions that only the New York Times could fumble to such a degree, was commented on by one Matt Stone.  No dickweeds, it is not okay that body temperatures are falling across the nation, that they typically fall as we age, and that it is “normal” to be low.  If I’ve learned anything about being an American citizen, the...

If Nutritionists were Mechanics

mechanics
By Matt Stone Low-Carb Mechanic (LCM) Customer: My car has got something really wrong with it. When I step on the gas it doesn’t do anything for a moment, and then bursts forward. LCM: Easy sport, sounds like a fuel-injection problem, probably due to too much driving. You see, the thing is, everyone in the world thinks gasoline is the best kind of fuel, but it’s not. In fact, powering your car...

Metabolic Typing

From what I can tell there are 5 basic metabolic types. 1) Excellent2) Mediocre3) Poor4) Heinous5) Pathetic The Pathetic metabolism is marked by tremendous weakness and constant cold body temperature. Eating anything of sustenance causes bloat. Bouts of charcoal constipation interspersed with diarrhea is the digestive function of the pathetic metabolic type at best. Allergies to everything...

Nutrient Bombardment

I’ve had a little bit of a thing going lately with eating the most nutritious food that I can get my hands on.  This was one of the first attitudes that I ever developed while attempting to improve my health through diet long, long ago.  Only problem was that back then I was primarily a vegetarian.  I was missing out on some very important nutrients that put a nutritious...

Vitamin D

Vitamin D, as the great Charles De Marr might’ve put it, is “the hottest thing since sunburn!” (Line at 7:05 mark in THIS VIDEO).  Mercola’s talking about it. Nora Gedgaudas is talking about it. Al Sears is freaking out about it. Even Joel Fuhrman is talking about it (at the expense of completely negating his vitamin D-less dietary recommendations). Everywhere I turn somebody’s...

I recently ate the best burger I’ve had so far in this lifetime.  Check out the full review at:...
